Specialists from Shell Lubricants implemented the Shell LubeExpert leak detection system, which is designed to help minimize leaks in large circulating-oil and hydraulic-oil systems.  Following extensive analysis in six separate areas across two integrated steel mills, technicians from Shell Lubricants presented the customer with a detailed report supported with photographs and oil-loss calculations. By minimizing leaks in six major systems, the Shell LubeExpert team helped the customer achieve overall cost savings.*
